Kumdibar 1898

Federation Splendour

Retaining a timeless elegance, Kumdibar has been sympathetically re-imagined for modern living while respecting its heritage. It offers a generous, wonderfully versatile floorplan spanning two vast levels, with all rooms bathed in natural light.

It contains five bedrooms and three tasteful stone bathrooms, the main with a spa bath, including an expansive master wing encompassing a travertine ensuite and a dressing area. A flexible study on each level could be used as additional accommodation if desired.

Entertain On A Grand Scale

Living Spaces For All Occasions

Kumdibar contains a series of gracious formal and casual entertaining areas for all events, providing plenty of private spaces to which your family can retreat. Harking back to a bygone era, the grand lounge and dining rooms are warmed by gas fires, while upstairs, a relaxed family area makes the perfect TV room for the children.

Adjoining casual living and dining space, the gracious marble gas kitchen lies at the heart of the home, complete with a breakfast bar around which the family and guests can congregate. Secluded above the double garage, a games room accommodates a king-size billiard table with ease, complete with overhead lighting.

Beautiful Traditional Details

Meticulously Revived

Kumdibar’s ornate classic details have been lovingly brought back to life or replicated, creating an atmosphere of enduring elegance, with double brick construction ensuring solid bones. As you enter the residence you are greeted by an extra-wide hallway with an impressive archway heralding your arrival.

Soaring 13 foot ceilings are enhanced by ornate cornices and picture rails, while whitewashed timber-panelled walls, a slate roof and parquet floors are a nod to its heritage. The wide verandah which wraps around the home is finished with original sandstone, still in impeccable condition.

Sophisticated Designer Touches

Contemporary Comforts

Kumdibar’s traditional features are enhanced by a host of modern touches for your comfort and enjoyment. The residence has been newly painted and carpeted, with the traditional Federation interior colour scheme replaced by a palette of cool grey tones adding a calming contemporary sophistication.

Elegant cabinetry has been custom-designed to reflect the home’s traditional air. Additional details include a security system, plantation shutters and ducted air conditioning to keep the surroundings temperate year round. The grounds are professionally lit and irrigated.

Breathtaking Formal Grounds

Championship Tennis Court

The residence is set well back from the street among romantic sprawling grounds. Impeccably manicured with sculpted box hedges and flawless expanses of lawn, the gardens have a sense of formality reminiscent of an English estate. Towering Canadian redwoods shade the property, which features a wisteria-covered pergola, an antique fountain and a wraparound veranda shaded by an ornamental grapevine.  

Play a match on the championship sized tennis court with a practice wall and floodlighting or relax by the 11.65m saltwater gas heated pool and spa framed by a sun-soaked sandstone entertaining terrace. Along with a double garage there are two carports with garden storage and a stately circular driveway to accommodate your guests.

A Coveted Family Address

Charming Village Life

Loved for its beautiful gardens, large parcels of land and the stately homes which grace its serene leafy streets, Wahroonga is one of the Upper North Shore’s most desired family addresses. Elite private schools such as Knox Grammar and Abbotsleigh are within an easy stroll and the local primary school is just one block away, while a local bus takes you to Macquarie University.  

Take a leisurely stroll to charming Wahroonga Village and immerse yourself in the welcoming local café culture, enjoy the weekly local organic food market, explore Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park or jump on a train and be in the CBD in just 30 minutes. The area is particularly popular with medical professionals thanks to its proximity to Sydney Adventist Hospital and easy motorway access to the Central Coast’s hospital precinct.
